Favre is still one of the biggest stories in sports and a Super Bowl win for him would be the biggest headline in years.
And with Manning on the sidelines, he’s no slouch either. Another Colts win would be perfect for his resume as well.
Colts Vikings Betting Odds: X-Factors
NFL betting fans know that Manning and Favre are the headlines, but the x-factors are the players who will make an impact.
For the Vikings, Peterson has to be the x-factor. Favre cannot carry this team the entire way and a big game from Peterson would be exactly what the doctor ordered. Peterson was quiet down the stretch of the regular season but a big Super Bowl appearance would pave the way to a Vikings win.
For the Colts, the defense has to be the key. If they can shutdown Peterson and force the Vikings to be one-dimensional, that will go a long way to securing a win. The Colts defense has been underrated all year long and they don’t get the credit they deserve.
Outlook & Pick
Sports betting fans betting with their hearts would side with the Favre and the Vikings but the reality is that the Colts are the better team. They also have the edge in team-wide experience. They have to be the pick if these two teams are the Super Bowl finalists.
